EVENTS

For the purpose of shared resources, education, marketing, and conservation of Fine Appalachian Craft, we host eight special events each year as well as daily craft demonstrations at the Folk Art Center starting in March. When you attend our events, you'll engage with the region's top makers, hear their story, and learn about the process of craft.
